Masheruka Siimuka Coffee Growers, Bushenyi Group
In this Group: Gordon, Bonifance, Appolo, Wison, Abias, Eliya, Pauline, John
Hard-working and enterprise-oriented Gordon M., aged 35, is operating a nursery and primary school in Bwizibwera as its director. This started 6 years ago and his school has since been accessed by many pupils due to their academic set standards. This has seen Gordon earn 500,000 Ugandan shillings as monthly profits on top of his salary.

This loan will help him in the construction of more buildings to accommodate pupils and also allow him to purchase furniture for the school like desks for pupils so as to improve their comfort at school. He is very optimistic to make his school grow into the best institution not only in his region but in Uganda.

Gordon belongs to Masheruka Siimuka coffee growers’ group of members who insure each other in paying back the loan.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
